***Abstract Deadline Extended to October 31 for the Merida Meetings***

President Allan Burns has approved a request from Program Co-chairs
Liliana Goldin and Francisco Fernandez to extend the deadline for the
receipt of abstracts for the Merida Meeting to October 31. This
decision replaces the earlier deadline of October 15.

This decision will be particularly helpful for those who found they
were unable to make the October 15 deadline.

The Program Co-chairs submitted this request after talking with members
of the Program Committee and other colleagues. They learned that
additional time was required by persons who proposed to develop
sessions with international participation. Their request was also in
response to the very large number of Latin American colleagues who plan
to participate, but who did not receive the meeting information until

Please pass this information to those colleagues that you think will be
interested. A copy of the Program theme statement is included on the
web site at:


If you have any questions about the theme, or the ways that your
research might fit into the Program, please contact Prof. Goldin at
goldinliliana at gmail.com or Prof. Fernandez at frepetto at uady.mx.

The Hyatt-Regency Merida will serve as the host hotel for the Meeting
next March. We have negotiated a very competitive guest room rate
($90/night, single/double) for meeting participants. You may make your
reservations by contacting 52 999) 942 12 34, ext. 3010 or 3011.
